Children's Teeth - Oakville
The ideal time for your child's first visit to the dentist is about six months following the emergence of their first set of teeth. It provides the dentist an optimal opportunity to carefully examine the development of your child's mouth and teeth - the sooner, the better.
To safeguard against issues such as baby bottle tooth decay, irritations from teething, gum disease, and prolonged thumb-sucking, our dentists are more than happy to recommend and provide if necessary, special measures of preventative care.
It's also important to practice good oral hygiene with your child to set a lasting example. Limit sugar intake and supervise your child while he/she brushes to confirm they use proper form. Also ensure regular dental checkups are the norm in your household.
